One of the awesome things about modern technology is the fact that most people have a video camera right at their fingertips. We tape everything, from graduations, to birthday parties, to our friends being idiots. Because of this, we’re able to see videos that compile people doing dumb things, and that’s exactly what we have with this video.

The 4th of July always brings out the moron in some people, and even though we’ve been warned not to mess with things that blow up, we continue to do it every year. Nothing bad will ever happen to you, right?

The people in this video prove that there’s a reason you shouldn’t mess with explosives, and that fireworks can in fact hurt when they blow up in your hand or on your face. So without further ado, I would like to present you with a video that shows the true spirit of this holiday – people being idiots.
